Vionic w/ Orthaheel Pearl Orthotic Thong Sandals w/ Jewel Detail
i have several pairs of Vionic sandals and one pair looks to be the same style except with studs instead of jewels I wore these a couple of times in the house before wearing them out shopping. After about 30 minutes, they were wearing blisters on my feet and I didn't have any other ones to switch them with. My daughter and I switched sandals and they rubbed blisters on her feet also. After over a month, I still can see where the blisters were on the top of my feet. These were pretty but very rough around the edges. I had to send them back.
I have loved wearing these in pewter this summer but the bling is falling off one or two at a time. Boo. :(
I have sent these back once because the vamp part was large and I thought it was just the pair of shoes, so I had them to send me another pair. They are the same way, the top is not secured with elastic on the side, so it doesn't fit your foot right. It has no give to it, and it stays too big for the top of your foot. I don't like sending stuff back, so I will have to eat this one, but I wont be ordering any more Orthaheel Orthotics.
purchased purple in my normal size, same size as my other ortho heels and this pair was way too large. Returned immediately.
So Sad, really Beautiful
I have three pair of Vionic sandals, in a different style. I love them, though I think the consistency is off somewhat, as one pair, fits differently than the other two of the exact same style. These beautiful purple sandals, were so much larger than my others, marked the same size. Too long, and even too wide, though I have a wide foot. I had never heard of Vionic until this year,mi wonder why their sizes are inconsistent.
I own other Orthaheel sandals that I love. But these are constructed cheaply and are very uncomfortable. Don't waste your time buying this style. Choose one that has a softer strap.
Sizing is off
I just can't seem to get the right size in these shoes this year. Last year I bought several pair of thong sandals in a size 9 and 9 wide. They fit perfectly. This year that size just doesn't work for me. In the regular of some styles the arch doesn't match my foot and in the wide width they flop on my feet. Too bad because I love the shoe and the new styles are great but I've had to return 5 pair already because I can't get the right fit. I give up.
Expensive "Flip Flop" With a Poor Fit
Although I shop with the QVC quite frequently, I have never felt compelled to write a review until today. These sandals are beautiful but fit poorly!
I assumed because these were rather costly Orthotic thongs they would be very comfortable. However, my assumption was very wrong and I made the mistake of wearing my "new shoes" out of town to go shopping without taking a backup pair.
After less than an hour of walking, the toe piece and the top of the shoes had begun to rub blisters on my feet due to the poor fit.
The sole of the shoe and the padding are great but the construction of the man-made upper is horrible.
I was shocked to be in that much pain after wearing THONG SANDALS for less than an hour.
Wake up quality control at QVC and Orthaheel..... My feet were sore even the next day.
It is pretty sad when one has to pull off an $80.00 pair of very uncomfortable sandals and buy a cheap comfortable pair at a discount store in order to finish ones shopping.
Yes, I had worn them for almost an hour, but QVC WILL be refunding my money on the ORTHAHEEL thong sandals. The shoes ruined what was supposed to be a fun shopping trip with my granddaughter.
These shoes are gorgeous, purple is my favorite color, and always love bling! However, the hosts claim that the thong doesn't hurt cause it's soft, well I tried them because of this claim. I have never been able to wear thongs because they hurt, these do hurt if you are sensitive between the toes. After wearing them once, and hardly walking in them, my ankles ached for the entire evening, I could hardly get to sleep!
I sent them back!
Best Shoes I have ever worn
When i got these shoes I could hardly walk.I know can walk without beening in tears from my feet and legs hurting so bad.If you have any problems with your feet this is the best brand of shoes that can be gotten. With QVC easy payment anybody can afford these shoes.
Love the Fit and Sparkle!
I can wear this style on my narrow feet and love the sparkle. I have worn Vionic since you offered them but unfortunately many of them are made for wide feet. The Honey is the best fitting for my feet. I have many foot problems along with being diabetic. They are life changing.
Just got the silver today. I ordered a 7 wide. I wear a 6 1/2 ww, I know they say to order down if your a half size but because I'm a ww I went up. They fit great, not too wide and they do fit snug across the top of my foot, so they are not moving around. So far I like them a lot.
